Teaching should be a joy – for the teacher who is dedicated and can remain unscathed by the inanities of mainstream education it can still be a joy.
In addition to personal and professional development for all this site is for three groups in particular; managers, parents – and teachers.
Many of the 1000+ themes on this site are relevant to you as a teacher – or to your personal or professional development.
In brief the model here – my SunWALK PDS (People Development System) sees teaching as maximizing the energy that flows through each of those you teach – and through the class as a community.
The teacher’s job is to nurture growth and development through keeping that flow of energy maximised – within a context of professional love and appropriate discipline.
That means paying attention to the needs of the group as well as to each individual.
In part your teaching is as good as your self-teaching and that is as good as the personal development you’ve achieved – including transforming any negative created by imperfections in the teaching you received.
The good news is that on this site are ideas that you can start to put working for you straight away.
